Standard Life Investments (SLI) has added to its global credit team with the appointment of Christopher Heckscher from Wellington Management.
Heckscher, who will be based in SLI’s Boston office, takes the position of senior vice president, US credit. He will report to Eriend Lochen, head of US credit and global high yield.
According to a release, the appointment is the first since Lochen was tasked with extending the group’s European high yield process into a global offering.
Heckscher will be responsible for covering US high yield and will work with the US equities team to broaden the group’s coverage of American investment grade issuers.
